I am the howling wind of the night
Whose wrath goes unspoken,
I am the feeling of sandpaper
Smooth on one side but completely different on the other,
I am a turtle
Meek and shy except to those of my kind,
I am the daughter of justice
Striving to do that which is right,
But the cousin of infidelity
Who falls and slips in a sea of lies,
I am a birthday,
Full of surprises both good and unpleasant.
I am simply,
Myself.

"I am simply,

Myself."

I love the ending. Very beautiful peom. Explains a lot how I am feeling right now. The sandpaper metaphor is your strongest. Bravo
